Yes, I can play them on the computer. A couple of years ago, all of the songs from this purchased CD (and many others) were recorded to the computer. From there, some were added to the playlist, along with tunes purchased from Napster, and subsequently recorded down to my MP3 CD with no problems. Now, just a few of the songs in the playlist pop up with this message about not having the licence, which was never an issue before, and shouldn't be now. The reason I don't try to record from the original CD is because it took me forever to compile the playlist in the first place. Now I don't have the time to re-invent the wheel, if, and when, I run into this problem when I expand my new '40's playlist. There are hundreds of songs stored in the computer. Methinks Roxio has made it more difficult to create playlists, which sould be eaiser to do now.
